some mp3 files on this site suffer from over compression. I prefer 64kbps but some are as low as 16kbps

Mp3's can easily be made in "High quality" and to sound great. It just seems that quantity is simpler to produce than quality. I have my programs (itunes, etc.) set to convert mp3's at 320kb but I have to do custom settings for that. 256kb mp3's are ideal and reproduce very high quality (sound) files. I think a bit-rate of 128kb is pretty much the lowest anyone should go and still maintain high quality. At 64kb and under, the files are so compressed that the audio quality breaks down too much (at least for me) and starts to become hard to listen to as things, areas of the reproduction, will get a bit gurgley.

Oh, yes... Poo on 32.
